Jason Kidd is keeping it simple, and his players are very happy.

Stefan Bondy reports that Kidd has simplified both the offensive and defensive schemes, and his players are happy and thriving. Deron Williams told Bondy that Kidd gets his points across quickly, while also mentioning it might have been best for Kidd to divorce himself of Lawrence Frank:

[sny-box]?I mean, Lawrence was always kind of the defensive guy, so he was talking on defense and he was definitely long-winded when it came to teaching, so I definitely think it?s helped [that Frank is no longer around] We?re a veteran group, so we get things pretty easily. So at times when you?re just talking and you?re not practicing, it gets a little lengthy. But I think J-Kidd does a good job of getting his points across quick and easy and then we move on.?[/sny-box]

The major hype right now surrounding the Brooklyn Nets is their search for a new coach.

P.J. Carlesimo did an admirable job on an interim basis, but assuming he didn?t lead the Nets to the Eastern Conference finals, his fate was pretty much sealed long before his firing.

Owner Mikhail Prokhorov and general manager Billy King want to bring in their own guy, and that search is ongoing.
